Gateway Event

We're on a Mission

CADI develops homes and communities so that low-income individuals and families may have a dignified living environment, achieve economic independence, and enjoy healthful and vital places to live and work. Our vision is to become the model for overcoming California's affordable housing and health crisis by focusing on the needs of our most vulnerable residents.

CADI's Core

Community The same spirit of camaraderie and collaboration that benefits our residents informs our internal approach to development and management.

Access Our in-house accounting, legal, and marketing teams, along with Century's financial backing, provide the infrastructure necessary to execute quickly and reliably.

Design We believe that aesthetically pleasing and functional spaces have a direct effect on the health of our residents and are fundamental to their recovery.

Innovation Each new CADI development is an opportunity to present a better solution to California's most pressing problems: poverty and homelessness.
